On some of the 34s at least, one of the legs of the stanchion base does penetrate the deck inside the toerail... the bulk of the fitting is indeed on the toerail, but this one part of it gets a pretty good load if the stanchion is stressed or pulled on, and it's not hard to imagine an eventual leak there.

Visible on starboard stanchion here:
